Jessica Jones Krysten Ritter To Star As Marvel’s JESSICA JONES On Netflix! written by Sean Gerber December 5, 2014 The Marvel casting news continues, but today we shift gears to Netflix. Marvel Television has announced the casting of Krysten Ritter (BREAKING BAD, DON’T TRUST THE B—- IN APARTMENT 23) to star in MARVEL’S A.K.A. JESSICA JONES, the 13-episode series that will air on Netflix, following DAREDEVIL in 2015. Executive Producer and Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg credited Ritter for having, “both the hard edge and the vulnerability the role demands.” Rosenburg is right. Ritter is a fantastic talent with a razor sharp wit that will work perfectly for the character and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This series should be a ton of fun with Ritter leading the way. Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb added his own praise of Ritter in the announcement, crediting her with abilities beyond comedy. Krysten Ritter has the type of range, spanning the comic to the tragic, that makes for the stuff of the best Marvel heroes. As Jessica Jones, Krysten will bring one of the most beloved new characters of the past decade to life in a way we know will delight her longtime fans and introduce her to many more. Loeb is also right, as fans of BREAKING BAD well know. This is a terrific casting coup for Marvel and Netflix as the studio and streaming service continue building their DEFENDERS series, of which DAREDEVIL and JESSICA JONES will both be part.

Sorry, I just love Apt. 23. I wonder if this will cause Marvel to acknowledge the existence of Alias again. The series is out of print and not available digitally, mostly for its R rated material I assume, but I believe its the perfect blue print for this show. Anyone who hasn’t read Alias is really, really missing out. Nayan Desai Its very recently been reissued in a marvel omnibus collecting the 25 odd issues of Alias. I I ordered mine about a week ago. It truly is a fantastic series and it is great to see it back in print finally! Michael Lalaian Awesome! I guess I was going on outdated information then. As recently as my birthday this year I asked my girlfriend for the Alias Omnibus and the only one she could find was the out of print $200 one. It’s also not available on Marvel Unlimited, but I don’t think any MAX titles are. This is very good news, maybe now I can ask for the recently released omnibus for Christmas… Nayan Desai Yeah, it is around 52 dollars on Instocktrades, which is 42% off normal retail price. I recommend checking out that site generally if you haven’t already as it has some superb prices and constant special offers on all things trade, hardcover and omnibus. It is not, however, good for my bank balance! Haha. All i am waiting for now is for Marvel to reissue the long out of print Garth Ennis Punisher Max run in omnibus form, that would be awesome! Hope you end up getting that Alias omnibus at Christmas..
